Today I popped along to Huddersfield to have a go at playing a game of Rugby League. The sport is very close to the people of Huddersfield’s hearts as it was where the sport evolved from Rugby Union. The town has a Rugby League team called the Huddersfield Giants who at the moment are 2nd in the Super League table.
Huddersfield is quite an old town that is well known for making cloth, maybe some of the material made to make your clothes came from Huddersfield. You can still see lots of the old textile mills as you travel around the city, some of them are very beautiful.
